Heavy rain today but that's fine as I am not working today. In fact, I have no reason to go out all day! Yay. Which is really unusual and something to appreciate :) i have 10 new kanji to master and a pile of homework to check. My bike is under cover and feeling unloved today I'm sure.

I spent an hour going through the forums looking for spammers and non legitimate forum users/members.

I nuked about 6 of them.

If you see any spammers send us mods a message.

And..now I can get on with my day....hanging Christmas lights outside.

Made a breakfast run down to Tuckerton, NJ. It's on the coast, about 50 miles from here. Two Triumph Trophys, a Triumph Sprint, and a Ducati Monster. Felt sorry the young guy on the Monster- naked bike, no windshield, and he was not running electric gear. It was about 33F when we started - brrrrrr!

Just finished another set of nights.

Before I left offered some overtime on 26/12. So between 25th & 29th will now be earning 61hrs at premium rate!! Bear in mind this is only NHS rate but the best I can currently earn :lol:


Was planning to shopping this morning but cold, wet & windy here so sat at home with fire on (treat) hot water bottle at my back + glass of cheeky Italian red :cheers:

Yes it is, but from a survival point of view, we would do it anyway, far to many accidents with guys getting rear ended. JHB traffic is a nightmare. Thankfully most of my clients are used to me turning up on a bike and I think they appreciate me being on time with no excuses.

One of our big complaints here is that there is very little visible policing, lots of speed traps and from time to time complete road blocks, so we have lots of windegat drivers and riders.

We are in Africa bro

it's a "procreating" jungle out here :kicking: :laughing: :laughing:

Today I've done nothing but drive around miami in an 18 wheeler. The air horn was used with reckless abandon. :D

By reckless abandon, I mean twice.

Would have been cool to meet up while you were waiting. I was. At work, 5 minutes away from there...

Found out that they developed a video that runs at a trillion frames per sec. Fast enough to capture light photons in slow motion... Totally cool...

Picked up my Xmas bird today, almost 9 kilos for the amazing price of zero dollars. Been saving Save-On-More points for years and read today you can get a big turkey bird from them for only 17,000 points.....I still have tens of thousands of points left to play with.
Always ask why.

I got one of the smaller ones today for ten thousand points. I have no points left now. I have always donated my points to disaster relief...but this time I had enough for an almost 6 kilo bird. It's big enough for my dinner and sandwiches the next day. :mrgreen: Will get the fresh cranberries end of next week.

Points? :lol:

Like a lot of companies out there...they have loyalty incentives. The points are given for purchases.....

Hence...I used my 10 thousand points to get a turkey.
